In ancient Rome there was a tradition, during the first month after the wedding, therefore during the first moon (since the calendar was lunar) to give to the bride, every day, a good feed of honey.
Romans attributed outstanding nutritional properties to honey, largely related to fertility and physical beauty.
Giving the bride honey for a whole month, therefore, meant, for ancient Romans, helping her to be as fertile as possible.
If today the definition "Honeymoon" is used in the Anglo-Saxon world too, this is due to the fact that the Romans, through their conquests, took this tradition also to the Northern people.
